The exclusive sky-high surroundings in the City of London were graced by players from the Cincinnati Bengals, the Indianapolis Colts, the Washington Redskins and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The mega stars in attendance at the Gherkin, where many of the corporate tickets were snapped up for the autumn series of matches at Wembley and Twickenham, included Britain's own NFL Super Bowl Champion, Osi Umenyiora.
Osi was joined by stateside legends such as Dwayne Allen (Tight End, Indianapolis Colts), Denard Robinson (Running Back, Jacksonville Jaguars), Domata Peko (Defensive Tackle, Cincinnati Bengals), Carlos Dunlap (Defensive End, Cincinnati Bengals), DeAngelo Hall (Safety, Washington Redskins) and Chris Baker (Defensive End, Washington Redskins) who talked about their excitement to play in London this autumn.
Alistair Kirkwood, Managing Director of NFL UK said: "This was the perfect setting for our NFL International Series Games preview and it was inspiring to see so many of the British fans mixing with some of the legends of the NFL. The players were clearly impressed by the passion that exists for the game in this country. We cannot wait for the autumn matches which create so much excitement not only in the UK but across the U.S and around the world”.
